As of late, artists have been receiving flack online over their meet and greet prices.

Chris Brown On His Viral Photos
“PSA!!! When artists do concerts, they all have something called a VIP package,” he said via Instagram, according to The Source. “I haven’t done meet and greets in over 7 years…”
He continued: “I have the coolest fans on the planet…I appreciate the f*ck outta them. These are memories that will last with them forever. Unlike most of these lame-ass artists that won’t make eye contact with the people who made it possible to even have a career. I only exist because these fans saw something in me I never thought was possible… So Ima go all out for my fans!!!”
